Burping Bertha

By Michael Rosen
Illustrated by Tony Ross

A new paperback edition of this hilarious collaboration between the famous poet and the exceptional illustrator!

On an ordinary morning, in an ordinary flat, an up-till-now perfectly ordinary Bertha does an extraordinary burp. A burp so extraordinary, it knocks things over. A burp so humongously big that very soon it's causing havoc in the school canteen, the playground, not to mention her grandad's apple trees... Such a burptastic secret cannot stay quiet for long. And soon enough it lands Bertha her very own celebrity stardom...but is it all just a lot of hot air?

  • Perfect for fans of Dirty Bertie.
  • Radio broadcaster, poet, and whirlwind performer Michael Rosen makes young audiences howl with laughter. He is an astonishingly prolific writer for both children and adults.
  • Hilariously illustrated by children's favourite Tony Ross, winner of the Smarties Prize.
